Wow, I wish I would have found this site sooner. I am also curious
about Uniontown, Alabama. My genealogy search dead-ends with my gg-
grandfather's birth there in 1868, three years after emancipation. I
am having a very hard time finding anything on him. His name is
George Monix and his father's name may have been Jasper. George wound

Uniontown, Alabama. His parents were both from Alabama as well.

Church, which has a history dating back to 1865 (when the
freedpersons formed Uniontown African Baptist Church).
I got this info from a historical sketch published by the Perry
